Full description

A non-estate pre-war detached bungalow with scope to update or re-develop, on the western side of town, convenient for the centre. Porch, Spacious Hall, Sitting Room, Dining Room/Bedroom 3, Kitchen, Lean-to, 2 Double Bedrooms, Bathroom, 109 ft Rear Garden and Extra Woodland - Total Plot About 1 Acre (sts), NO CHAIN, VIEW ASAP.

From Bury St Edmunds, proceed along Out Westgate and at the traffic lights, turn right into Petticoat Lane. Continue round the left-hand bend into Hospital Road and round the right-hand bend, passing the cemetary. Continue along West Road and the property is located on the left. IP33.

An extremely rare opportunity to purchase a non-estate detached bungalow, understood to be built in the 1930's, standing in a large mature plot and with the added feature of a large area of additional woodland to the rear, which together with the existing generous garden equates to a total plot of about 1 acre (subject to survey).

It is felt that the bungalow offers potential to either be refurbished and updated, extended or even fully re-developed, subject to the necessary planning permissions.

Such is the rarity of this type of opportunity and the potential on offer, we strongly recommend viewing at the earliest convenience.

Sitting amidst beautiful countryside, Bury St Edmunds is an historic town and the second largest in Suffolk. Surrounded by many picturesque villages, some of which offer good local amenities, it offers a wide range of cultural, educational and recreational facilities.

Features of particular note include St Edmundsbury Cathedral with its Millenium Tower, the famous Abbey Gardens with the original ruins and The Georgian Theatre Royal, which has recently been the subject of a restoration programme. In addition there are two cinemas, one of which is a multi-screen complex and a sports centre.

Bury St Edmunds and the surrounding villages boast excellent schools and further education is catered for at the West Suffolk College.

The town benefits from extremely good shopping facilities with a twice weekly market and a wide range of independent traders, national chains, five supermarkets and the arc shopping centre, opened in 2009. In addition there are many pubs and restaurants which cater for a variety of tastes.

The A14 dual carriageway heading west from Bury St Edmunds provides easy access to Newmarket, Cambridge, the Midlands, Stansted Airport and London, via the M11. Stowmarket and Ipswich, both with direct rail links to London's Liverpool Street, the East Coast and the A12 are all readily accessed by heading east.
